Eagle Vision Sessions
It is expected that you attend all Eagle Vision sessions, just as they would in a face-to-face classroom. If there is a problem with your attending one of the sessions, please let me know beforehand. Be aware that a 4 hour 45 Eagle Session Class cannot be made up by simply viewing the recording afterward as participation is expected in the EV session. Also, be aware that the makeup session for the Thanksgiving holiday will be on November 26 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:45 p.m BST.
All assignments and discussion posts are expected to be handed in or completed on time within the specified deadline. You will always know exactly when assignments are due, and all discussions must be completed by the end of the relevant module. If you know an assignment will be late, due to exceptional circumstances, then you must let me know before the due date, and documentation will usually be required for the assignment not to be penalized. If an assignment is late, it will be docked one full grade for each day late and will receive an “F” after three days.
Be aware that incompletes or extensions are only granted under the most unusual of circumstances and almost never without some kind of documentation to support the reason a student cannot complete the class on time. Extensions are granted for a maximum of 30 days, but it is up to the instructor whether they are granted at all and for how long. In addition, there must be a clear plan as to how and when the missing work will be submitted. This is in accordance with ERAU policy.
My policy is to grade all assignments within one week of their submission. If, for any reason, I cannot do that, you will receive an email or a course announcement stating when the assignment will be graded. Rubrics will be provided for all assignments, and I adhere closely to those in determining your grade. Rubrics not only guide your process of completing the assignment, but create transparency in the determination of your grade. Every graded assignment will contain the score according to the rubric, and will contain more detailed comments by me regarding that score.
It is highly recommended that students keep electronic copies of all materials submitted as assignments, discussion posts and emails, until after the end of the term and a final grade is received.
